From its earliest inception as the Hydraulis to the latest in organ technology, the organ has had incredible influence on the history of music and sound. Spire celebrates this ‘Emperor of Instruments’ with live performances for organ, electronics, piano and voice, contrasting digital and analogue to create a rich sonic journey unique to each performance location. See Spire in Spitalfields for the first time, visiting St Botolph without Aldgate and its newly restored Harris organ.
